My Z5P drops wifi constantly. Looses contact, everywhere. In 5min it can happen 3-5times.
While no one else with for example Iphone looses.
It also happens frequently in public wifi places, and its really annoying.
Anyone else with the same problem?
I am ready to return phone. Its THAT bad!

I'm sorry to hear that
Does this happen also when there's good reception and you are using the phone (display on)?

Yes it happens Always! At home i Have 2 Asus routers (1000Mbit fiber) and full reception, and it happens when screen is on, when im sitting surfing, facebooking or wordfeuding. Suddenly i get an exclamation mark over the wifi bar, and i have to turn off and then on the wifi to get it to work again.
And it is not one or two times, It happens constantly.. EXTREMELY ANNOYING. :-(

When this happens, are you able to reach the configuration page of the router using Chrome? It's probably 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1.
Could you also try to turn one of the routers off and see if it still happens? If you have the DHCP-server on in both, this could be the cause.

Yes ofcourse i can reach configuration on routers. And i am obviously not using both at same time. Since my house is quite large i have one network on each floor.
And the problem occurs also at work, and public wifi, as soon as i turn off the wifi, 4G works excellent.
I clearly seems to be something wrong with Xperias Wifi. Or can it have to do with batterysaving?

Sorry, i meant to write Chrome in your phone. When you have the exclamation mark on the WiFi-symbol and internet in the phone is not working, are you able to reach the router configuration if you go to the router IP from Chrome in the phone?
What you are describing is not related to battery saving when it happens while you have the display on. It sounds like you still are connected to WiFi but the connection stops working for some reason. The exclamation mark is displayed when Android is unable to reach the Google servers.

Do you see the same thing that gundeho does? That it works for a while and then displays an exclamation mark?
I've tried my Z5 Premium with two different Asus routers but i don't see this.
Would it be possible for you to try to do a software repair using PC Companion?

I have now tried different solutions here at home, and it seems the problem is most accurant when you "change" wifi.
For example, when i com from my car (with wifi) it seems like Z5p cant get on home wifi. i have to restart the wifi in the phone and then it works.
After a while for example facebooking, FB doesnt load anymore, and a few seconds after that the exclamation mark appears. And i have to restart wifi on phone.
Same happens at work. and at public wifi´s (Telia here in Sweden).

I'm afraid it sounds like there's something wrong with your phone as this happens with different networks.
Would it be possible for you to try to reinstall the phones firmware by doing a software repair using PC Companion and see if that helps?
The phone should connect automatically if you turn on the display when you're home. Z5 will however not scan for and connect to WiFi networks automatically when it's in sleep mode (display off) so when you turn on the display, it might take a short while before you see the WiFi-icon.
